Every one knows Illinois' financial condition is terrible.

Companies are leaving the state. Who has been in control of the state for the last several years? Mike Madigan. If you want the Chicago Democratic Party running the state with more of the same failed policies, vote Democrat, if you want to start to see change vote Republican.

This goes for the county, as well, and the federal government. We were promised "hope and change." We got lots of change most of which was not for the good and not much hope.

If you vote Republican, will all of the problems go away immediately? No! Will the economic situation change? Yes! We can look back on the last for years and see what we have to look forward to if we don't make a change. If you want to know where the companies are going, look to Texas and ask yourself why.

If you look back four years ago you will remember every one was talking about the problems with Social Security and Medicare.

Have the president and Democrats put forth legislation to fix the problems? No.What did they do? They passed Obamacare. How are they going to pay for part of it? Take money away from Social Security.
